I just finished a watching a movie called ZEITGEIST on Google video, I just couldn't stop watching, if you've seen it you'll know what I mean.
The movie has three parts, The Greatest Story Ever Told, All The World's A Stage and Don't mind the men behind the curtain.
The Greatest Story Ever Told is about the foundations of Christianity and many other religions, which in Zeitgeist explains that they are more or less based on the Zodiac and that it has been a motif used long before Christ. One version of this is the story of the Egyptian god Horus, from the movie the story seems the same as Christs.
All The World's A Stage deals with 9/11 conspiracy theories, much of this I see on a daily basis and it's mainly a collection of news footage, not commentary like in the first part. For me it didn't have the spark that first and third parts had, but I think as a lead up to the third part it works well.
Don't mind the men behind the curtain goes into how a few people (bankers) are manipulating the people of the world through controlling money. Seems simple, inflate, create debt and call it in after enough time. It also goes into how war is used to make them even more money and gain even more control. One thing that I found interesting is that apparently in America there is NO law that says you have to pay your income tax, it's just assumed that there is.
I found it a very compelling watch, as for the honesty about it, I can't comment, that would probably take a life time of research.
You can watch it in its entirety below, its just over two hours long and this is a pre-release to the final version that is coming soon.
